[Elections] Add a "none of the above" option?

I'm not sure this works. If like last year we vote for our favorite 7
candidates in the order that we want to see them elected and we only like 3
candidates then we vote for none of the above in place 4. Does this really
have the effect of voting against people or does none of the above have an
unfair advantage given that it represents voting against multiple
candidates? How do we know which candidate none of above represents a vote
against? For example if you vote for A B C N and I vote For A B D N, N gets
two votes! If everyone votes N then it always wins! I wonder if we should
have a yes or no vote on candidates instead. Like a confirmation.
